Rural and frontier communities are at risk of being undercounted in the U.S. Census, as nearly 70 percent of the hard-to-count population lives in these areas. An accurate census count is critical because it determines the allocation of federal funding and ensures fair political representation.
On February 27th, join us to discuss the challenges to reaching hard-to-count populations and learn about the strategies rural health stakeholders are using to maximize responses in rural communities. We’ll be using the hashtag #RuralHealthChat to tweet with experts from around the country who are excited to share their knowledge. Everyone is welcome to provide comments, questions, or just follow along!
Log onto Twitter and follow the #RuralHealthChat hashtag. The RHIhub will tweet questions regarding our topic and special guests and other attendees may jump in with answers! Questions will be numbered using Q1, Q2, etc. and answers should begin with A1, A2, etc., matching the question they belong to. If you would like to join in, be sure to use the #RuralHealthChat hashtag in your tweet! All participants may follow along and jump in when they want to contribute answers or questions.
